Dying Light 2-patch Fix StoryQuests, Koop and much more now on PS & Xbox

Techland was diligent and has dying light 2: Stay Human with new patches. The full-handling of fixes does not only affect technical improvements, but also refers to more obvious things like faulty story quests and co-op problems.

When is the update ready for download? From now on you can load the patch on your console. While it is on the PS4 by version 1.07 and on the PS5 by 1,007,000, it goes on the Xbox around the patch

How big is the Dying Light 2 Patch? Techland has not given the patch notes no size, but the update is around 4.2 GB on the PS5.

The most important improvements

One of the most important fixes concerns the deatloop bug. After players had problems with them that they immediately died after loading a game, whereupon the Savegame was reloaded, which led to death again and so on, all known deatloope cases should now be resolved.

Likewise annoying were defective quests that could not be terminated. That should now belong to the past, as well as numerous co-op problems. These include, for example, performance breakdowns, accepting co-op invitations and crashes.

How the co-op works, you read here:
